MISSISSIPPI 39191 As ioe grow older, the inclination is to return to the place where we first ventured away from the shelter we knew as home. The place where we had our first fears and doubts about being away from the protection of our parents. This was a place where we begin to gain self re- liance, obtain some maturity, make new friends and broaden our knowledge of some inkling of the future. For most of us this place was Copiah-Lincoln Junior College. It was a home away from home. Thus, the word "HOMECOMING" has a special meaning for those alumni who attended Co Lin in the past and those currently attending. Homecoming is a time to meet and reminisce with "ole" friends, make new ones, meet members of the administration, staff, faculty and students of Co-Lin. This year the event is scheduled for October 17. We will play the Southwest (Summit) Bears in football that night. During the day reunions for classes of the I 's and possibly others will be held, as well as for the undefeated and untied 1933 football championship team. This team was captained by Harry "Moon" Mullins. If you know the names and addresses of anyone who has attended or graduated from Co-Lin, assist us by sub- mitting them to the Alumni Association so we may get in touch with them: Co-Lin Alumni Association P.O. Box 553 Wesson, MS 39191 Help us locate these lost people. We want and need your presence and support. Sincerely, Robert W.

All three are open for contributions. The Noah "Cap" and Lona B. Wallace Scholarship, the Arlee W. Walker Pre-Professional Science Memorial Scholarship, and the James Robert "Jim" Lowery Memorial Scholarship have been added to the college's scholarship program. The Wallace scholarship was established in memory of Mr. and Mrs. Noah Wallace by their children, Mrs. Ruby Pearl Smith of Wesson, Mrs. Frances W. Christensen of Broken Arrow, Okla., and Marvin J. Wallace of Bartlesville, Okla. Mr. Wallace was a long-time Copiah-Lincoln employee in the 1930's and 40's when all young men were required to work on the college farm one day each month under Mr. Wallace's supervision. He was a staunch supporter of Co-Lin's athletic program and the present heavy equipment mechanics building is named in his memory. Mr. Wallace attended Copiah-Lincoln High School the first year it was organized, 1915, and the Wallaces' grandson was an honor graduate of the last senior class to attend high school on the campus of Copiah-Lincoln Junior College in 1979, span- ning the entire 63 years of its existence. Yearly a $150 scholarship will be awarded on Awards Day to a freshman student who plans to return to Co-Lin the fol- lowing year. Preference is given to a Wesson student who graduates from Wesson High School. The winner will be selected by the faculty scholarship committee, based on scholarship, leadership abilities, and high Christian ideals. The Arlee Williamson Walker Pre-Professionai Science Memorial Scholarship was established in the fall of 1980 by Dr. Phyllis Hayes, chairperson of Co-Lin's science division. The late Mrs. Walker of Magee was the mother of Burlian Walker, director of public information and alumni affairs at Co-Lin's Wesson campus. Mrs. Walker died of cancer on March 23, 1979. Dr. Hayes established the scholarship upon presentation of a $250 grant given her as Outstanding Instructor of the Year in academics by the Copiah-Lincoln Alumni Association. The scholarship will be to aid in medical development, growth, and research for the betterment of mankind. The scholarship is awarded to a sophomore pre-professional science major in the areas of pre-medicine, dental, pharmacy, veterinary science, or nursing. Basis of selection will be need, ability and attitude, and the desire to achieve. Dr. Hayes was one of the five international winners in the Chemical Manufacturers Association's Two-Year Catalyst Award for teaching chemistry during 1980. The James Robert "Jim" Lowery Memorial Scholarship was established in 1980 by members of the 1978 Copiah-Lincoln High School Senior Class, by his family and his friends. Recipient is a Wesson High School graduate who has attended the school for four consecutive years and who plans to attend Co-Lin. Basis for selection will be high ideals, outstanding leader- ship, active participation in school activities, spiritual influence, a "C" or better average during the senior year, and a desire to better himself or herself. Jim, a 1978 graduate of Copiah-Lincoln High School, attended Copiah-Lincoln Junior College and was employed by the Mississippi State Highway Department at the time of his accidental death at the age of 20 in October, 1980. His parents were Mr. and Mrs. Mac Lowery of Wesson. His mother, Mrs. Joy Lowery, is a secretary at Copiah-Lincoln. Those wishing to contribute to these scholarships or others open to contributions should mail the tax-deductible gifts to Copiah-Lincoln Alumni Association, P. O. Box 553, Wesson, MS 39191.
